seventh term. lou: such a remarkably able u.s. senator. neil: he moved a lot of positions, he moved gingerly to the right, he cornered his tea party opponent and the winner of the republican primary. that is a seat that stays in republican hands. it could mean that republicans and in worse shape than what we think. lou: given what we have seen, i am not surprised -- in missouri and indiana, this is a campaign organization. let's be straight forward. the strategy was sometimes incomprehensible. it amounted to less than the two plan to take over the senate. this is before things went from bad to worse the. neil: yes, picturing leadership changes here. lou: you absolutely could. there would be those in the senate, in particular, those who would demand changes. the language has become a little tired. the strategy has become a little less provocative and deep than it should be. i'm not talking about the presidency. i'm talking about terms of being competitive in the united states. neil: lou dobbs, thank you so much. we have jeff and columbus, ohio. how does it look? >> yes, i can hear yo

. the u.s. added 171,000 jobs last month. but, you know, i must emphasize this, the unemployment rate inched up .1%. that's 7.9%. the numbers are on your screen. so more jobs than expected, but a higher rate of unemployment. both campaigns have something to chew on right now and chew they did, of course. here is mitt romney. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it is actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> now, as you might expect, the president is zeroing in on the job numbers. here he is, take a listen. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> all right, with that said, i want to bring in now our chief business correspondent, mr. ali velshi, he's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the preside

help right away. ask your doctor about cialis for daily use and a 30-tablet free trial. >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing. we are live from tower city center here in cleveland. i've been covering the obama and romney campaigns here in ohio since friday following both since they barn stormed this state and the country in a last frantic final push. can you believe it's the final full day? well, president obama visiting three states that will make up his firewall today. wisconsin, here in ohio and iowa. mitt romney just wrapped up a florida. now, he's headed to virginia and then back here to ohio. he'll end his day in new hampshire. polls show this race is extremely close. a dead heat nationally. very close in the battleground states. perhaps a very slight advantage for president obama. he seems to have a little bit of momentum going into the final day. well, democrats point to long lines for early voting as a sign of enthusiasm, but republicans say their crowds are bigger and the obama magic from 2008 has warn off. the president's closing argument, a fair shot for everyone and a
until now. >> correct. i had somebody use the following phrase with me, he may be the ultimate lagging indicator in that mayor bloomberg is a cautious guy politically. he's always looking out for mayor bloomberg and there's nothing wrong with that. politicians always look out for their own best interests first. that's the nature of being an ambitious pol, but would he have done this if he thought obama was going to lose. >> that's a indicator of the public. >> that's my question. i don't know. >> by the way, the late brilliant jack jarvis -- somebody once say when that ball comes down on new year's eve, or just at midnight when it starts to come down, that's how he would come down on an issue. you know the decision had been made. here i give him more credit, mike bloomberg, who i happen to like personally. i think he does follow very constructive, middle of the road instincts on this thing. my thought. >> he's trying to put himself and he's brn trying to position himself for a long time as kind of a centrist arbiter. he set up a super pac to set up centrist politicians and moderate pol
obama is going to try to use his victory which is very their coto press his agenda to raise taxes on higher income americans. i do not see republicans want to go give in on that at all. i think the fiscal cliff will be relatively unchanged. look at what we have had. we had this election. president obama is still going to be president. john bane letter still be speaker of the house and harry reid will still be the senate majority leader. not a lot has changed. bill: byron york. martha: just before 1:00 a.m. eastern time governor mitt romney stepped on the stage to thank this supporters. he told american people there is much work to be done and he called on law makers from both sides of the aisle to do it together. >> the nation as you know is at a critical points. at a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering. this is a time of great challenges for america and i pray the president will be successful in guiding our nation. i so wish, i so wish that i had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction. by the nation chose another leader. so ann an

[laughter] the white house and the senate will still be in democratic hands come january, the house still firmly controlled by the republicans. on the heels of a hard-fought contest, president obama appeared ready to reach across the aisle. at one point sending out a message that read, we're all in this together. that's how we campaigned, and that's who we are. thank you. and last night in his victory speech, a similar tone. >> i believe we can seize this future together! [cheers and applause] because we are not as divided as our politics
command center. we have fema right there doing outstanding job. right now, helping us go door-to-door to locate people that might be missing, trying to locate more fuel to come in and then also, setting up a location in suffolk county, nassau county, community college, a school in lindenhurst where people can go, it's an all-purpose center run by fema and the counties, which will provide emergency assistance, whether it's housing, whether it's aid to rebuild homes. right now the main thing is restore people's power because colder weather's coming. you have many people or senior citizens who are either living -- lost their homes or living in homes absolutely no power whatsoever. and that's having an impact, impact on gasoline. there's believe it or not, it's hard to find atm machines because the port of new york's been closed. there's a short of food new york refrigerati refrigeration. a lot of people eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and things like that. the new york, long island metropolitan area. it's primmive over the last several days. traffic lights out. a series
on why they vote the way they are. martha maccallum will cover that for us. >> reporter: they are analyzing the response as they come out of the polling places tonight. there are key states like ohio and virginia. the polls are still open for hours as people come home from work and continue to vote. so many areas we haven't heard from yet. what we can tell you for sure so far is that this is a very tight race tonight. let's start with the national poll question. direction of the country. are we on the right track or the wrong track? it's evenly divided. those saying we are on the right direction and going for president obama, no surprise there. 52%, though, say we are headed in the wrong direction. they are backing governor romney. now voters are split on whether the economy is getting better or worse. huge question tonight for everyone, of course. you have about four out of ten states getting better. three of ten say it's getting worse. three of ten says it stays the same for them. slightly more voters think governor romney would hand the economy better. slightly more v
stirewalt. and michael brown. let me start with you. what does it tell us? >> it sounds like mitt romney is very eager to keep the path to the presidency to him open. that is to win ohio. if he can close what seems to be a persistent that small gap in ohio, his chances of winning the overall presidency are much higher. that's what he wants to do. megyn: michael, what does it say about mitt romney campaign on election day. something obama is not going to do. >> we are seeing a close election in multiple states. in the polling and in the public polling, we are saying the same things. they are going to give up for a minute. they will try to make some news and push a few things over that line. it shows also that there is still nervousness about ohio. after friday night, a 30,000 crowd, indicate that they really want to carry ohio. they are going to make every effort to do so. megyn: today we got another prediction, a prognostication from larry sabado and he is predicting an obama win. this differs, before it back to you, mitt romney will win it easily tonight. >> i don't think that mitt romn
